Let’s take a closer look at some of the specific benefits of Virtual Reality:
1. Experiential Visualization
From the initial concept to project collaborations, to the finishing touches that can make a building revitalization go from okay to great, Virtual Reality offers the ability to experience an better than any other type of medium. VR can transport the users into an interactive environment which allows them to not only see the components of the revitalization but to actually experience how the improvements will impact the building as a whole.
2. Sharing the Vision
Regardless of the size of the project, most revitalization projects involve different stakeholders. Often there isn’t a single decision maker, but rather many people who will be asked for their input on different aspects of the project. Getting everyone into a single location in order to discuss the design decisions can be difficult, as well as inefficient and time consuming. Stakeholders are also able to make informed financial decisions based on the selected design; it helps to associate the benefits of revitalization when it is seen and experienced through VR.
3. Minimizing Revisions
Providing a client with a detailed virtual representation of the revitalization will make the feedback process more straightforward. The client will be able to easily see what they like and do not like about the proposed materials, design, etc, which makes it easier to fix. This will mean less time spent revising designs and awaiting more feedback. Virtual Reality makes it possible to make changes in real time, which aids in the decision making process.
